Well yea... there was never an editor. In fact, thats whT i have been working on  8)

DJ Omnimaga

Oh that seems very nice. I hope you can release it with the game in the near future. :)

I like the editor, I will definitely make some (probably crappy) levels for you ;)

Levels will be needed. Tomorrow today i plan to enlist my friend at school to draw up some levels for me.  :)
The level editor is sort of working, you still can't edit meta data so no portals and switches in the level editor ( :( ), but i will release a beta editor soon.
Meanwhile, i released a new version that fixes a few bugs and has some small changes ;)

alexgt

Cool, I hope you can release it soon I really want to mess around with the editor ;)

c4ooo

After some lack of success, i got levels to actually write to the save file.  :w00t:
Unfortunately, the file size is around 9000 Bytes now   <_<
I hope to release an update ein the next week or two.  :)

Sweet :) If it gets too big, you might wanna think about making an app of it.

9000 bytes per levels or 9000 bytes for the editor?

I probably would have, but right now i am to lazy to revert a small smc-based optimization :P
* c4ooo runs

You can still run it with Doors though ;)

For the whole game  8)
Level size depends on how much stuff is in it :P
I think the formula for level size is something like: Name_length(6 for all editable levels) + 3 + ((Number_Of_non_air_tile + (2*Number_Of_Non_consecutive_air_tiles) / 2) ;)
Edit: correction.

DJ Omnimaga

Oh phew. 9000 per levels seemed shockingly high. :P

By the way, I forgot if DCS removes the 8 KB executable code limit? That was a major issue for Axe and ASM coders back then.

Yes [good thing] it does.
For now i think i will require DoorsCS, but later either optimize *A LOT* or switch to using an app  :)

DJ Omnimaga

An app might be better, assuming everything can fit in 1 page. Good luck!

What exactly are you using DCS for?

DJ Omnimaga

From what I can gather, he uses it for removing the 8 KB code limit. If he doesn't want to make his game dependent on 1 shell, then he could probably use some tool like Fullrene, if that doesn't require the game player to run it first, but I don't remember if those tricks still work. I haven't kept in touch with 8 KB circumvention tricks in years.
